When Rasmus meets Marie, he is certain that he has finally met the love of his life. Soon, however, Marie shows herself to be a dominating and demanding creature, intent on cunningly taking Rasmus apart. This is the story about women and their insistence on being dominant within a relationship, as seen through the eyes of a man. A truthful portrait of the horrible nature of woman.

Registration of festival participation and awards

The Danish Film Institute registers international festival participation and awards for Danish films, though primarily for films whose festival distribution is handled by the Danish Film Institute, and primarily in connection with festivals prioritised by the Danish Film Institute. Festival participation and awards regarding Danish films that are not handled through the Danish Film Institute's festival distribution will only be registered in connection with "launch" festivals, according to the Danish Film Institute's list of priority festivals.
